Quick Answers

 

 

How do you vent a pressure canner?


To vent a pressure canner, let steam escape through the vent (pressure regulator or weighted gauge opening) for 10 minutes. Venting drives all of the air out of the canner. During processing the canner must be filled with steam not air to reach the necessary temperature.
